A simple way to creating a true retro impact from fashion is to keep the design classic and simple, relying on the cut and draping to flatter the silhouette. That simplicity works best with well chosen fabrics, like in this Silk Waterfall Dress from French Connection.
The rich navy silk fabric does all the work, allowing for effortless draping of the dress across the body. The waterfall sleeve detailing adds some high end flair to a classic forties-inspired tea dress shape, creating eveningwear with real vintage credentials.
It's available from French Connection now for £135.
